The Friendly Dolls

It is safe to say that I have fallen in love with crochet dolls. The combinations and ability to personalize is my favorite thing! These are some of my favorite designs. It honestly warms my heart to think of a little person cuddling with a home made crochet creation!

Amigurumi Tools and Materials

A lot of people have recently asked me how I got started in amigurumi and what they need! I wrote a post about all of the tips I wish I had known HERE, but this post should answer what you need to get started!

Favorite Amigurumi Patterns

 I love amigurumi patterns! Amigurumi is the three dimensional crochet that brings you adorable dolls, sweet little animals, and even cactus and plants! I rounded up some of my absolute favorite patterns that are good for beginners and for the more advanced. If you are looking for your next amigurumi project, this is a great place to start! 

The Friendly Santa Crochet Pattern

The Friendly Santa is about 10 inches tall and 4.5 inches wide (not including the arms and hat.) Santa works up fairly quickly so he is a great last minute gift or item for craft fairs. For this project I used I Love this Yarn from Hobby Lobby, a size 4 worsted weight yarn, in red, white, black and Ivory. For the beard and trim I used Bernat’s Pipsqueak Yarn in White. I used Caron’s Simply Soft in Gold for the belt.

But doing a craft fair is kind of like having kids. You just don't know what it is REALLY like until you have one. So here are my tips and tricks that no one told me- So I am telling you! What to expect, what to prepare for... and what advice to take with a grain of salt.
